‘Style, energy, and a sense of risk. These four young Frenchman made the music smile.’


Recently completing a season as ECHO Rising Stars, and former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists, Quatuor Van Kuijk’s international accolades include First Prize at the 2015 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, First Prize and an Audience Award at the Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition, as well as becoming laureates of the Aix-en-Provence Festival Academy. They have appeared at leading European festivals, including Verbier and Lockenhaus, and released three critically acclaimed albums on the Alpha Classics label.

On their first tour to Australia for a residency at the Canberra International Music Festival, they perform at the UKARIA Cultural Centre, the Melbourne Recital Centre, and the Utzon Room at the Sydney Opera House.
